This just in from a boutique owner on West 3rd Street: "Rumor has it that Doughboys might be the next Madison. Also, another rumor going around is that the gallery that is moving out on 3rd is going to be an Ernest Sewn store. . . the competition steps up a notch." The gallery our tipster refers to is the Left Coast Galleries, which closed its West 3rd Street shop, just west of Sweetzer, but maintains its gallery in Studio City. What's interesting about this development is that Blackburn and Sweetzer notes that the space right next to the former Doughboys is also under some major construction and "only the beams are still standing between the Doughboys space and the space right next door at 8132." Perhaps making way for a much larger retail space like Madison? [Racked Inbox]
